Like human beings, dogs have their own personality. However, the dog’s breed plays a huge part in it. Others you may find gentle and sweet to their owners doing everything to please their owners. Some, on the other hand, are headstrong to obey any orders. Whatever personality your dog may have, they are all trainable.
If you want to teach a simple or complicated dog trick, with perseverance your dog certainly can. This is one basic thing you need to remember in the dog training equation. Your dog’s breed, age and general temperament do not affect your dog’s ability to get trained. It should not stop you from training your dog. For it to work, you need to invest in the training. Spend more time and focus on it for better results.
According to experts, for it to be successful teaching your pet to perform a dog trick should have regular trainings. It should be short but consistent and frequent. It should be maintained to see better results. Compared to having irregular and long training, the short yet consistent trainings are more effective.
In training your dogs, they are like kids. They learn more in a positive and encouraging environment. To make them submit to a behavior the pet owner wants, never use harsh punishment like hitting them or using electric shock for them. They respond better with positive reinforcements like giving them a reward such as food treats, toys, and praises.
Professional trainer’s advice on giving your pets special food and not their regular food when you want to reward them with food. Another thing is it should be given in small quantities.
Plus, a more effective setup would be a training before your dog’s meal time. If you choose praises as a reward system, professional advice on scheduling the training during the pet is responsive to such stimulus for instance training them after school or work.
Another thing you should keep in mind to help make the training more effective is giving the reward instantly after the dog has responded to your command. In the event that your pet fails to respond to commend, his punishment should be the absence of a reward, not hitting them.
Whether you are training your dog to be well-behaved or have the ability to entertain guests, the most important thing is you should be able to have fun while training your dog. You should always bear this in your mind.
